‘Frozen’ easter eggs: ‘Tangled,’ Mickey Mouse, and more

By Andrew Sims | Edited by Karen Rought

Disney has released high-res photos from Frozen that depict several Easter eggs in the movie.

The Frozen Easter eggs may not have been easy to spot when watching unless you begged your theater’s reel operator to stop the movie (yeah, right), so these new images from Disney are greatly appreciated.

Mickey Mouse

The mouse himself “makes the quickest of cameos in ‘Frozen,'” writes Disney. “A small Mickey Mouse plush sits on one of the lower shelves in Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post and Sauna.”


Rapunzel and Flynn from ‘Tangled’

The two stars of Disney’s 2011 animated movie made cameos, unbeknownst to even the film’s director until a reader tipped him off.

“Elsa’s coronation draws guests from far-away lands—and movies,” writes Disney. “From ‘Tangled,’ Eugene Fitzherbert aka Flynn Rider and Rapunzel even made the guest list.”

‘Wreck-it Ralph’ candy

Last year’s movie from Walt Disney Animation Studios was a runaway success, and despite the entirely different settings between Wreck-it Ralph and Frozen, Disney found a way to mix the two.

“Anna’s affinity for chocolate summons sweet treats all the way from the land of Sugar Rush in ‘Wreck-It Ralph.'”


A Disney animator’s painting

Disney animator Lisa Keene’s painting, “completed during the development phase of ‘Tangled’ and based on ‘The Swing’ by Jean-Honoré Fragonard, made such an impression on ‘Frozen’ filmmakers, it became part of Anna’s signature song, ‘For the First Time in Forever,’ when she leaps into the air and mimics the painting’s pose,” writes Disney.



Frozen opened in theaters in late November and has welcomed very warm reviews. Over the weekend Disney released online a full sequence from the movie: Idina Menzel’s “Let It Go.”
